How it Works

BOOK YOUR SESSION

 

The booking process starts with a booking questionnaire that helps me learn more about your dog and what to expect when working with them. The next step is to choose your session date from next available spots. I do a limited number of sessions each week on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Once the date is chosen, you will receive a portrait agreement electronically to review and sign, along with your invoice for the session fee. Upon receipt of the signed agreement and session fee, your date is secured. See below for tips on preparing for your session.

THE SESSION

 

We begin by taking the time to let your dog relax and get to know the space. I work with controlled studio lighting as well as simple seating and backdrops. The focus is on your dog having an easy and relaxing portrait experience, so they can shine. We work at a pace that suits your dog and take frequent little breaks to make sure your dog doesn't get tired or stressed. When I am working with your dog, it is important for you to avoid distracting them, by calling their name, giving commands, or otherwise diverting their attention. If your dog doesn't have a solid stay, I may incorporate your help to keep your dog in place, but otherwise, it's best if you sit back and relax while I do my thing! Don't worry, I don't expect them to sit and listen all the time. I want them to stay relaxed and not feel restricted, so don't worry if your dog is not on their best behavior, it's all part of the process. :-)

Please note: Studio portrait sessions are not suited to all dogs. Dogs that are generally very nervous, startle easily, clingy, overly coddled, etc., may not do well in a studio session. Please request a no-obligation consultation, if you would like to discuss whether a studio session is right for your dog.

PREVIEW AND ORDERING APPOINTMENT

 

Ordering appointments will be scheduled approximately 1 to 2 weeks after the session. This is the time when you see all your final images and make decisions on your portrait order. Ordering appointments are done virtually via Zoom. We use specially designed software to view, choose favorites, and design artwork. We’ll help you sort through the images and make final decisions on what will look best with your decor and what fits your needs and budget. Specializing in custom fine art Eco-friendly products, we take the guesswork out of choosing ethically and environmentally sustainable products. We have carefully selected the perfect product line that balances Eco-minded art with exceptional heirloom quality. To learn more about our product line, check out the Products page . We will work with you to choose your custom artwork, so you won't be overwhelmed with options. It is a good idea to consider your budget before the appointment, so that we can help you make the most of it when choosing products that are right for you. For wall art, we recommend that you take some time to consider where the art will hang and the size of the wall space. We also encourage you to send a picture of the wall space ahead of your appointment so I can show you how the artwork will look in your space (please ask for instructions in doing so).

YOUR ARTWORK

 

In about 4-6 weeks your order will be ready for pickup. Your artwork will be carefully inspected to ensure it meets our quality standards. We also offer a 100% happiness guarantee on all our products. Then it's time to enjoy your artwork and let it bring a smile to your face each and every day!
